ALBEMARLE MARTINAL OL-104/G


C O R P O R A T I O N
Flame Retardant

Description MARTINAL OL-104/G flame retardant is a high-flow and elongation ATH flame
retardant with a polymeric coating that improves mechanical and electrical
properties in EVA/PE and rubber compounds when mineral fillers such as ATH
are used. It is a fine precipitate designed to provide improved elongation at break
and improved rheological and electrical properties, especially in thermoplastic or
crosslinked EVA/PE or rubber compounds. This product’s polymeric coating
makes it an effective alternative to silane-treated grades in certain applications.

Key attributes of MARTINAL OL-104/G ATH flame retardant


with polymeric coating
• no coating storage or handling • no alcohol emission during mixing
